2. Description of Related Art
With the widespread use of computers, the computers are playing a more and more important role in people's lives. And the computers require many peripherals, such as speakers, keyboards, mice, and so on, to fully take advantage of the computers. However, a size of a mouse generally cannot be adjusted, which cannot fit for everybody's need.
The hood 20 includes an arc-shaped plate 22, two side plates 24 extending from opposite sides of the plate 22. A receiving space 26 is bounded by the plate 22 and the two side plates 24. Two openings 220 are defined in a front end of the plate 22, corresponding to the left button 11 and the right button 12 of the mouse body 10. Two through holes 240 are respectively defined in front ends of the side plates 24.
In assembly, the hood 20 covers on the mouse body 10, to receive the mouse body 10 in the receiving space 26. The side plates 24 of the hood 20 respectively resist against the sidewalls 13 of the mouse body 10, with the through holes 240 respectively aligning with the sliding grooves 14. The two openings 220 are respectively in alignment with the left button 11 and the right button 12, exposing the left button 11 and the right button 12. Each positioning member 30 passes through the through hole 240 of a corresponding side plate 24 of the hood 20 and the sliding groove 14 of a corresponding sidewall 13 of the mouse body 10, to engage one of the plurality of fixing holes 16 of the sidewall 13.
In use, the two positioning members 30 are released from the corresponding fixing holes 16, thereby the hood 20 can be moved to a proper position of the mouse body 10, corresponding to different users, then positioning members 30 are engaged in another two corresponding fixing holes 16.
It is to be understood, however, that even though numerous characteristics and advantages of the present disclosure have been set forth in the foregoing description, together with details of the structure and function of the disclosure, the disclosure is illustrative only, and changes may be made in detail, especially in matters of shape, size, and arrangement of parts within the principles of the disclosure to the full extent indicated by the broad general meaning of the terms in which the appended claims are expressed.
